Description - Leaders Who Make a Difference by Burt Nanus
There are many books on leadership, but few that focus specifically on the role of nonprofit executives. Author Burt Nanus and colleague Stephen M. Dobbs have written this comprehensive book on nonprofit leadership. The authors show how leaders build successful nonprofit organizations by developing key relationships to improve their performance and move them toward a greater good - such as much higher levels of service to their clients and community. They describe the six key roles that effective leaders must play - visionary, strategist, change agent, coach, politician, and fundraiser - and present inspiring examples of how their actions in these roles have been crucial to the success of large and small nonprofits flourishing across the nation. The book offers proven lessons on strategy, team building, fundraising, advocacy, board relations, and much more. Grounded in real-world practice, the book champions the potential of all nonprofit leaders to greatly improve the performance of their organizations and realize their visions of better communities.
